1024X768. My cheap old X700 is doing pretty well, and now that I've "tuned in" to the difficulty level of the badasses, I am enjoying it acutally pretty immensely. It is now a challenge, not impossible. Perhaps it's just been awhile since I've played a balls out shooter like this. I jumped a few times so far, but no pants browning yet. I am at the level just before that cannibal guy I think..Exeunt Omnes it's called. But it stands to reason it is games like this that make gamers claim chapter 11 dude =P
